Leaked Border Patrol documents revealed the Biden administration has released a massive amount of illegal immigrants into the U.S. this year.
The documents obtained on Wednesday, show more than 160,000 illegal immigrants were released since March, often without any oversight or supervision. Specifically, about 94,000 illegal immigrants were released with “Notices to Report,” meaning they must check in with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) only after arriving at their final destination. That group specifically, is protected from deportations as they await immigration proceedings.
NEW/THREAD: According to Border Patrol documents provided by a source, the federal gov has released over 70,000 illegal immigrants into the U.S. since August 6, including 31,977 released via parole (temp legal status, eligible for work permits).

In addition, since August, nearly 32,000 immigrants were given paroled status and granted the ability to apply for work permits.
Despite the influx of immigrants the administration has released into the U.S., federal law says parole authority is to be used only on a case by case basis for “urgent humanitarian purposes” and “significant public benefit.”
“By law and regulation a parole shall only be granted on a case by case basis and only for significant humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. Neither of these appear to apply to the current situation,” added former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott, stating he believes the administration is abusing its parole authority.
